What's really going on?
DISCOVER THE ROOT CAUSE
One Part Detective.
One Part Scientist.
Every patient manifests imbalances and symptoms in a unique way. Uncovering the root cause is a lot like detective work. We employ state-of-the-art lab testing and analysis to find out what is going on inside you, and then we apply a personalized approach to helping you heal from within.
There are many important aspects of health including but not limited to:
digestion and absorption
and inflammatory processes
With proper analysis of the body’s complex network of systems, patterns of dysfunction can be identified and shifted back into a state of proper function.

We start with the basics, the roots.
Many of us have been "diagnosed" with a condition. Others of us simply
put up with not feeling great - gut issues, hormone issues,
weight loss issues, etc. up until the point those issues become
chronic or urgent. At that point, we seek medical advice.
Before seeking medical advice, we often look to our friends,
annual doctors visits or our own online research to find relief.
What does it mean to start with the root cause?
Think for a moment, when a tree or plant starts to wither (symptoms),
what do you do? You water it and give it sunlight, in other words, you tend to
the roots. If they are happy the tree is happy and more likely to thrive.
Functional medicine applies the same approach to patients. We examine the foundations (roots) of health; sleep, exercise, nutrition, stress,
relationships, genetics. Then we look at how these roots are being
influenced by predisposing factors (antecedents), events (triggers),
and ongoing physiological processes (mediators) and may then result
in imbalances at trunk level. As time progresses, these imbalances can eventually result in disease that can be grouped into categories,
represented by the branches and the leaves.
